      Tuesday moring was opening day for the 36th annual Sunbelt Ag Expo and people couldn't wait to come in.

      Officials with the expo expect around 80,000 to 100,000 visitors this week alone and they advise visitors to download the mobile app for your smart phone so that finding exhibits in the expo will be easier.

      There are over 1,200 exhibitors this year in the expo that include live demos, tractor testing and much more.

      According to the executive director Chip Blalock there are also some new additions to the expo. "We moved the Chevy test track inside the exhibit grounds just south of the horse pavilion and technology throughout the exhibit and throughout the Sunbelt Ag Expo this year."
